Chris Foresman:

Ars decided that if Apple was too preoccupied with mobile devices to recognize noteworthy software on the Mac, then we would pick up the torch. As such, we are announcing the first ever Ars Design Awards.

We are giving you, our readers, the opportunity to nominate your favorite Mac OS X applications to receive an award in one of five categories: Best New App, Best User Experience, Most Innovative App, Best K-12 Education App, and Best Student-created App. We will accept nominations until Friday, May 21.

Very cool.
